His Excellency Nana Akufo-Addo following the excellent WASSCE results of the first batch of the Free SHS beneficiaries has commended the candidates for proving critics and naysayers who opposed against the policy wrong.
The President made the commendation on Monday, November 23, 2020, when he visited Aburi Girls Senior High School (ABUGISS) who according to candidates results performed outstandingly in the national examination.
“I am reliably informed that the WASSCE results of Aburi Girls Senior High School, and, indeed, of all 2020 SHS graduates, was extremely impressive. Those who claimed that the policy was not achievable must be very ashamed now. I will shelve that conversation for now so we deal with it another day”, Nana Akufo-Addo said in a short speech.
He continued “However, I wish to congratulate all the students for their brilliant performance in WASSCE examinations,” Akufo-Addo added.
According to 2020 WASSCE statistics, about 60% of the 342,500 candidates who sat for the this year’s examination scored between A1 and C6 in their best six subjects, including English and Mathematics.
